Ulaanbaatar is the capital of Mongolia and one of the country's busiest business centers. Flights from Ulaanbaatar available through Orbitz.com leave from the Chinggis Khaan International Airport, located approximately 11 miles from the city's center. The airport offers flights to Russia, China, Korea and regional airports in that part of Asia. Major airlines available at the location include Aeroflot, Air China and Korean Air.
A small number of garages provide parking at the airport. These locations charge no fees but do not provide long-term parking services. For long-term parking, arrangements with local hotels or car-rental companies may be made. Travelers are encouraged to take other methods of transportation to the airport.
Taxi services provide the bulk of the low-cost transportation options to the airport. Fares from the city's center typically begin at around $10, but some drivers may offer sales as low as $5 for one-way travel to the airport. Many taxi drivers will try to haggle with passengers. Rental cars are available for pickup and return at the airport, but the lack of paved roads in Mongolia can make this an expensive and time-consuming option for drivers unfamiliar with the unpaved, lightly-marked roadways.
The airport offers standard waiting fare. Coffees and snacks are available at venues inside the airport. Nearby dining options include international restaurants that serve Mongolian, Indian and Thai fare. Prices for dining in the airport area are very reasonable, with inexpensive foods starting at around $3 and high-end options topping out at around $20 per person.
